Poem Title: Get Up
Get up,
From that road
Where the night stays awake snoring
And the day steals the virtues of the night,
As dreams turn to nightmares under sunlight

Get up
From the shadows of negative people
Where you relax disturbingly,
Under the cool shade of a heated doubt,
Leaving goals reduced to regrets

Get up
From your knees bent to defeat
Where anxiety calls home;
As your legs appear borrowed to fear,
Making aspirations crawl to reality

Get up
From the seat of deceit
Where laxity is acceptable
And excuses are glorified,
Ensuring an unsure future

Get up
From the bed of roses
Where prickles puncture passion;
Deflating goals,
With thorns masked in an inflated desire

Get up,
From the low places
Where mediocrity is padded by contentment;
Framed up in ‘a case closed’ syndrome,
As ruefulnes becomes a flatmate in your comfort zone.

Get up!
Move up!!
Stay up!!!
